Aaron Boone’s men entered part one of the Subway Series with the best record in Major League Baseball, with the single-season wins record in their sights. But since getting swept at Citi Field last month, they’ve become one of the worst teams around. They still hold the lead in the AL East, but that won’t be the case for much longer unless some of Aaron Judge’s brilliance can rub off.
The Mets are still just about ahead of the Braves in the NL East standings, and are one of several teams that now command a better record than their crosstown rivals. But a once sizeable cushion has narrowed to a sliver, and Buck Showalter needs Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer to run it back and inject a bit more of that magic into a fine season that’s just stalled a little over recent days.
It’s going to be a fierce atmosphere at Yankee Stadium, but can the Pinstripers do their talking on the field? Follow our guide as we explain how to get a Mets vs Yankees live stream and watch MLB from anywhere.

MLB blackout rules mean that you can’t use its otherwise comprehensive MLB.TV (opens in new tab) streaming service to watch teams within your own market – fine for Yankees fans living in Seattle, not so great for those in the Bronx.
It’s a real pain for cord-cutters, but fortunately, VPNs help you get around this by allowing you to relocate your IP address to a different location. This means you can still be sitting in your NYC apartment, but your computer will be rerouted to a server in a different part of the country – thereby allowing you to watch the Yankees or Mets just like you would if you had a fancy cable package.
A VPN will also work when trying to access your regular MLB streaming service (or any other sports and entertainment streaming service) from abroad when geo-restrictions would otherwise block the coverage. VPNs are legal, secure and easy to use.
